there is a national sorority called Sigma Lambda Gamma and a Canadian sorority with the same name. the American one was founded in 1990 and the Canadian one in 2004. check out the history section on the Canadian website. rofl

lol I just looked at the Canadian website's history. So basically, "fuck it, we like the name and the concept... let's run with it!"

Out of curiosity, I just googled the history of DST and AKA. Really interesting. I guess that explains the historical rivalry between the two that I always heard about.

Ok. Not sure what the has to do with "two groups with the same name," though.

We all know that Wikipedia is the end all, be all when it comes to research.

But that still has nothing to do with the topic.

Please point out how these names are identical:

- Alpha Kappa Alpha // Delta Sigma Theta
- AKA // DST

Still wondering how AKA and DST are similar names.

Just stop. Your trolling is pathetic.

Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois, has literary societies that seem to function as social organizations as well. While touring the campus several years ago, my husband was aghast to see women wearing Sigma Phi Epsilon letters. He knew there wasn't a chapter there and as it turns out that is also the name of one of the female literary societies. One of the men's literary societies is Sigma Pi. Evidently, some hazing was going on this year.

Phi Kappa (Phi Kappa Theta) started out as a local Phi Kappa Sigma chapter and dropped the Sigma after learning of the National Chapter.

There is/was also a Phi Kappa Society at UGa

Theta Kappa Phi is a defunct fraternity that merged with Phi Kappa to form Phi Kappa Theta, apparently it's also a Asian Sorority now

Gamma Phi Delta Sorority (Founded 1943) is Historically African-American and a "professional business organization" which takes new sisters from both professionals and students. It is non-sectarian but does require belief in a supreme being. (http://www.gammaphideltasorority.com/)

Gamma Phi Delta Fraternity Christian Fraternity Inc. (Founded 1988) is a Historically African-American Christian Fraternity whose cardinal principles are fellowship, evangelism, and discipleship. (http://www.gphid1988.org/)
